Multimillion dollar Department of Defense order secured

Savi and ORBCOMM will track and monitor nearly 24,000 high-value military assets.

   Savi and ORBCOMM announced Tuesday that they have secured a multimillion dollar order to track and monitor nearly 24,000 high-value military assets for the Department of Defense.
   Savi provides big data and machine learning analytic solutions, supply chain management software and sensor technology. ORBCOMM is a global provider of machine-to-machine and Internet of Things solutions.
   The order from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) is part of the active RFID-IV contract to provide government agencies and allied partners with state-of-the-art hardware, software and integration services for worldwide asset tracking and in-transit visibility, the companies said. Savi currently is the sole provider for the RFID-IV contract, which has a $102 million ceiling and is in its second and final option year.
   In support of the initiative, ORBCOMM’s high-performance cellular devices will be used along with Savi’s platform to supply in-transit visibility and inventory and logistics data, significantly reducing the resources needed to manage and track important DoD assets, the companies said, pointing out that ORBCOMM’s sealed devices were selected because their waterproof, solar panels provide continuous power to rechargeable batteries, offering reliable service without maintenance or battery changes across a typical asset’s lifecycle.
   “The unique combination of ORBCOMM’s best-in-class devices combined with Savi’s real-time asset visibility and analytics software and government experience delivers a quick return on investment for our government customers through a significant reduction in labor associated with the management of these high-value assets,” said Marc Eisenberg, chief executive officer of ORBCOMM.
   Data from ORBCOMM’s devices will flow to Savi Visibility, a cloud-based visibility and analytics platform, and to DoD’s RF-ITV network, where agency logistics managers can see the real-time location and status of their assets. Savi’s visibility platform provides a real-time view of where assets are in transit, eliminating supply chain blind spots. Logisticians are able to receive Savi Visibility’s real-time alerts for anomalies, such as tampering, delays or cargo entering or exiting a geozone outside of predetermined parameters, to mitigate delays and execute contingency plans.
   ORBCOMM and Savi plan to complete deployment of their in-transit visibility and asset-tracking solutions in the fourth quarter and to continue to work with agency officials to expand their solutions to other groups within the DoD.
